    Skymaster LARGE F18C

    Sandro dropped this monstrosity off to me today!! Wow... is this ever a huge plane!!

    118" long, 78" Wingspan. Totally dwarfs our 101" long Yellow F18's

    Trying to convince Sandro that he needs a pair of 200N turbines

    I will dryfit everything together and it then goes off to paint!! Will wait for it to come back to show the scheme!!

    Awesome detail on the wings. And this one has massive flaps and slats. Should really transform the way it lands with those slats!!

    Nicest feature of this plane is the landing gear! Very beefy, amazing hydraulic suspension and whicked detail.

    And the front and rear gear pivot in big aluminum frames that bolt to multiple formers to spread out the loads. Awesome

    Ha! This will be an all-winter project! It goes back to Sandro soon so that it can get painted.

    And currently making up a list of goodies to complete. YIKES!!!! Should give his VISA card a good workout, LOL

    Re: Skymaster LARGE F18C

    All kidding aside, I'm Looking forward forward to seeing this come together. I always learn something from your builds whether it be a new skill or a piece of equipment I should add to the shop like the Pro-tec HVLP paint gun I now have...
